2019 Report of the Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee has prepared its slate of proposed candidates to fill the scheduled 2019 Council vacancies.

About the nominees

In 2019, there are 10 Council positions scheduled for nomination and election. Profiles of each nominee are provided here for your information.

Each candidate brings a range of skills, experience and knowledge to the CMPA. As a group, the candidates have been proposed based on their collective skills and ability to contribute to the broad range of issues the Council considers when overseeing CMPA business and affairs.

Diversity

The CMPA seeks and values diversity among Council members. A wide range of perspectives and opinions promotes effective governance and is vital to the CMPA’s ability to respond to the complex, multi-stakeholder environment in which it operates.

We aim for a strong Council committed to equity and diversity where the experience of each member combines to collectively meet the needs of the Association. Our Council seeks to reflect diversity across characteristics such as gender, age, ethnicity and race, as well as within medical professionals, seeking a balance of family physicians and specialists, and representation from across the entire country.
